What would it be like to wake up every morning alert and happy instead of stressed and worried?
Imagine how it would feel to work out with plenty of energy, as opposed to stopping your planned workout half-way – or not even going to the gym at all.
How about going to bed at night without the leg cramps or restless legs and hypnic jerks?
What about sleeping better and not getting bad dreams?
This is incredibly crucial to grasp, but unfortunately, most B vitamins might make your problem worse by providing the biologically INACTIVE forms of B vitamins. These are precursor vitamins. If you currently take a B complex vitamin, look at the label and see if it contains any of these inactive forms of B:
Pyridoxine, Riboflavin, Folic Acid, Cyanocobalamin = Biologically inactive!
Here's why it's so important. If your body fails to convert any of those to an ACTIVE form, then your cells can't use them, they're useless, they pass through your urine.
But you think they worked! Most people do because their urine turns yellow but that's just the dye of the riboflavin. Your body can't use riboflavin til it turns into an active form "Riboflavin 5' Phosphate"
Many people cannot activate their B vitamins, none of them due to a lack of cofactors or genetic SNPs.
If you are going to take a nutrient, then why not take it in its biologically active form?
Why would you ever take something that doesn’t readily work? You’re just hoping that your body is able to undertake the various complex metabolic pathways to activate the nutrient – is that a chance you want to take?
Example: “Folic acid” is not active and Methylfolate (also called 5-MTHF) is biologically active!😀
Now you have a choice with Mito B-Complex. It contains biologically active nutrients!🏆
Example: “Cyanocobalamin” is not active whereas “adenosylcobalamin” and “methylcobalamin” are!👍
(Other B formulas are cheaper - no doubt! But that's because they use inferior ingredients and you're possibly flushing away all the cheap INACTIVE vitamins!)
Suffering and long-term problems are known to reduce serotonin and GABA in your body, which lead to more discomfort, inability to sleep, nerve pain, irritability and confusion. Vitamin B12 has a direct influence on melatonin, your primary sleep hormone,* which is often suppressed with chronic illness. B2 and pantethene support adrenal function.
The more stress you deal with, the more cortisol you produce, which then uses up all your B complex vitamins, causing multiple deficiencies. The more stress, the lower your Bs! Vitamin B5 (pantethene) helps prevent over-secretion of cortisol and Vitamin B3 (niacin) helps break down cortisol.*
Certainly the way you eat will determine the amount of B vitamins you’re consuming. That’s why vegans are often deficient in vitamin B12, which is found abundantly in meats. If you don’t like to eat leafy greens, or if you follow the Paleo diet, then it’s possible you’ll become deficient in folate. And individuals with Celiac and intestinal permeability problems (or high zonulin levels) are sometimes deficient in vitamin B12 and iron.
Drinking wine with dinner can increase your homocysteine level, and thus a greater need for vitamin B12 and folate (as 5-MTHF). Alcohol consumption also causes a well-known deficiency of vitamin B12 (thiamine), which can lead to a set of symptoms that cause you to feel and look as if you always have a hangover.
Did you know that your gut microbiome produces biotin and vitamin B12? So, if your digestive system isn’t working at its optimal level, then you’re not making as much of these two B vitamins as you should be.
Taking acid blockers can cause a deficiency of ALL the B vitamins. And taking a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) for more than two years is associated with a 65-percent increased risk of a vitamin B12 deficiency. The most popular PPIs are Nexium, Prevacid, and Prilosec, but all antacids and all acid-controlling medications deplete the B vitamins.
Some of us (just under half the population) has a genetic SNP in the gene that controls the production of biologically active folate. It's called a methylation SNP and you can check your genes to see if you are +/- or +/+ in either of these variants: A1298 or C677T. A result of -/- means you do not have the genetic polymorphism. But if you are +/- or +/+ then you need some B vitamins to support this detox pathway.
This is an autoimmune condition in which your immune system attacks your gastrointestinal tract and lowers Intrinsic Factor, a protein required for B12 absorption. If you're anemic, you'll need vitamin B support.
Suffering and long-term diseases are known to reduce serotonin and GABA, which then cause heightened sensations of nerve pain and discomfort.
Vitamin B12 has a direct influence on our ability to cope with stress which, if left unchecked, leads to many diseases. Avoiding stress is not possible anymore.
Did you know that you have about 15 pounds of mito floating around in your body?! That’s approximately the same weight as a cat, a big turkey, or a bowling ball!
The irony is that mitochondria are the collateral damage of standard medications! Many people know they have to supplement with B vitamins, however, they only work when they're biologically active and/or "methylated" so they slip inside your cells. Almost EVERYTHING on the market contains an INACTIVE precursor vitamin.
So SAD, and such waste of money.
Suggested use: Take 1 or 2 capsules daily.
With Mito B-Complex, you can get ALL of your B vitamins in ONE capsule and be certain they get into your MITOchondria.*
Your mito are powerhouses, they generate energy like a battery!
They float inside trillions of your cells. You have 10-20 pounds -10% of your body weight! Each mito takes in nutrients and releases energy.
Your mito "breathe" for you making ATP⚡
In the heart, when the mito are unable to breathe, and starving for oxygen... well, it's a bad thing!
Your mito generate oxygen for you.
And they are not just in your heart muscle, because all of your muscles are working constantly for you, so those cells also have thousands of mitochondria, whereas neurons need fewer mitochondria.
"I started to notice a difference the second week. I have more energy and sleep better.The activated forms of the B vitamins seem to work better and I am happy to find them all in one pill."
"I cannot recommend enough this formula of B's. I have ALWAYS had an issue with B vitamins making me horribly nauseated, but not withMito B. Feeling better already."
"Wonderful, these is the first B complex I have ever been able to take and I have tried others that made me very tired. I don't know what makes these B vitamins different but I'm glad I tried them."
"I love knowing that I'm buying the very best B vitamins on the market, with no nasty additives or fillers. Thank you, Suzy, for another amazing product!"
A customer asked why we call it “Mito B-Complex” instead of just plain "B-Complex" like all other formulas.
The answer is simple. The nutrients in Mito B-Complex GET INTO the mitochondria, hence the name, "mito."
Adenosylcobalamin or Adeno B12is a type of vitamin B12 that occurs naturally in foods, and it’s also the form that your mitochondria need. I dare you to look at the product label of your current B vitamin complex supplement and find that ingredient! I bet you won’t find it. What you’ll likely find instead is “cyanocobalamin."
Cyanocobalamin is a precursor, it does not get into the mito the way adeno-B12 does.
Adenosylcobalamin or "Adeno B12" for short is the biologically active “coenzyme” form of vitamin B12 that is body-ready. Many, many other supplements require your cells to convert an inactive form of B12 into this form, but many individuals have genetic SNPs, or nutrient deficiencies, or a disease that impairs this activation.
Adeno B12, on the other hand, is already biologically active and ready to work. ⚙️
Adenosylcobalamin is used predominantly in the mitochondria, working as a building block of the enzyme that converts “methylmalonyl-CoA” to succinyl-CoA, which is part of your Krebs cycle.* If that conversion doesn't occur in your body, the former compound builds up and can damage your nerves. ☠️
This pathway is important.
If it's impaired for any reason, including an insufficient amount of adeno B12, then you may feel exhaustion,experience harm to your liver, more infections, 🦠 muscle weakness, and serious nerve damage.*
If you don't know these problems are tied to a B deficiency, you'll end up on 10 drugs!😬
Vitamin B2 is so important for healthy brain function and studies suggest it can be indicated for fatigue, leg cramps, and healthy hair and cell growth.* Sadly, plain riboflavin is what's found in practically every B complex supplement on the market. This form is not active. It's a precursor that has to be activated to "Riboflavin 5-Phosphate" in order for it to help you with energy production in the form of ATP.*
In Mito B-Complex, the biologically active R5P is used!
Vitamin B3 is sedative and calming, because it works as a GABA agonist (similarly to benzodiazepines), but of course it’s a vitamin so it’s mild.* Niacin lowers your stress hormone, cortisol.*
Even individuals with alcohol dependence, conditions of worry and stress, or certain mood problems can respond to the relaxing qualities of niacin.* Niacin (for cholesterol) and niacinamide are not exactly the same. Mito B-Complex contains both of these forms of vitamin B3.
This nutrient in the B complex is a precursor to Coenzyme A, which is also part of your Krebs cycle, and it literally helps you sustain life.* Although a deficiency is rare, it could lead to memory loss due to impaired synthesis of the memory molecule acetylcholine, as well as numbness, parasthesia, adrenal dysfunction, muscle cramps, and low blood sugar.
Pantothenic helps maintain cholesterol levels within the normal range.*
Mito B-Complex contains TWO types of vitamin B12.
Adenosylcobalamin (Adeno B12) is used by the mitochondria, the battery of your cell where ATP (energy) is made.* It happens a million times a minute.
The Krebs cycle produces Methylmalonyl-CoA (converted to Succinyl-CoA). It's right there that Adeno B12 works in your mitochondria to to generate cellular energy.* You're reinventing more energy, every split second! When the Kreb cycle falters, it causes DNA and RNA damage (free radicals), which is connected to fatigue and abnormal cell growth.* Tired mito = tired you!
Biotin makes for more youthful, beautiful hair skin and nails. A deficiency of it is associated with hair loss and red, scaly skin so biotin is sometimes useful for people with rash problems.
Biotin also plays a role in maintaining the normal rhythm of your heartbeat.* There is some evidence to suggest that biotin helps manage blood sugar.*
Mito B-Complex contains another form of B12 in addition to adeno-B12 which is described above. It's called Methylcobalamin.* This supports neurological function and the break down of homocysteine.* The CDC has reported that some children with motor and language developmental delays may be B12 deficient! Methylcobalamin deficiency may cause confusion and numbness/tingling. A deficiency impacts the health of your myelin, which is a wrapping around your nerves.*
The active form of vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal 5’ phosphate, or P5P) can help with menstrual pain, as well as nerve pain issues.* In addition, B6 can support a healthy mood by impacting the way you break down neurotransmitters.* Issues and pain with the tongue, lips and gums may occur without B6. Vitamin B6 doesn't work, it has to be converted in your body to P5P, and Mito B-Complex gives you P5P because it is body-ready. You take it, and it works.
Vitamin B1 or thiamine is necessary to make acetylcholine and GABA,* which are your memory compound and sleep/relaxation hormone, respectively. Mito B contains benfotiamine. Benfotiamine is a lipophilic form of vitamin B1 that penetrates your brain neurons about 3 - 4 times better than the plain thiamine!
Vitamin B1 also helps your body with alertness, heart rhythm and eye movements. Also, thiamine along with B12, "wrap" each nerve with protective myelin.* Thiamine levels plummet with alcohol consumption.
5-MTHF is a biologically active form of the synthetic B vitamin you have heard of called “folic acid.” I chose 5-MTHF for Mito B-Complex to ensure excellent immediate effects on your methylation pathway and metabolism.*
5-MTHF is especially useful for supporting a positive mood and a healthy central nervous system, because it is the only form of vitamin B9 that crosses your blood-brain barrier.* It helps build neurotransmitters in your body to support a good mood as well as myelination (coating) of your nerve fibers.*
